So it’s (past) mid November and I am sooo behind in terms of sewing, blogging and generally being organised. I’ve decided to blog my J Dress without photos of it being worn, mainly because the wintry weather (it snowed – or at least sleeted – yesterday) means I won’t be wearing this summery make again for quite some time. 

The J Dress is Le Jardin dress. I purchased the fabric from Holm Sewn at Easter, and just loved the print and vibrant colours. The pattern was yet another Cynthia Rowley 1873, with a self-lined bodice. The only difference with this pattern was the silky fabric meant I tried a rolled hem – with varying success in different sections. Alas, no close up photos of this. I wore this dress on the last day of term before the summer holidays, to go out for a meal with my mum and dad, but I didn’t take photos as I was too tired and ready for the hols. 

I’ve included this last photo because, although this is the dress pre-zip insertion, which is why it looks oversized and shapeless, at least you can get a better look at the fabric. 

Now I’m off to trawl through my photos to try and work out which one my K Dress was…
